Radio Host Jan Mickelson Says Nuns Should be Pistol Whipped
Radio host Jan Mickelson says that the Catholic nuns who have embarked on a nine-state bus tour to protest the injustice of Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) proposed budget deserve to be beaten with a handgun because they “threw the first punch.”
“There’s a bus full of nuns headed towards Washington to lobby against the Ryan plan,” Mickelson told Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA) last week. “Do you guys, do you have any power to pull the nuns on the bus over and pistol whip them?”
“They say he is evil, they say he is fake Catholic,” he added. “They’re the ones that threw the first punch.”
A Vatican report also recently criticized the nuns for focusing too much on the Catholic Church’s message about social and economic justice instead of spending time opposing abortion and marriage equality.
